Welcome Good People-

My new album, “Glow”, is all finished, ready to go and will be coming out on March 4th! I feel truly lucky to have been able to record it my hometown of Montreal with producer, Howard Bilerman, at his studio along with a super group of MTL musicians.

Every record I do is special to me for its own set of reasons. This one represents a discovery of a sound that I’ve been chasing every since I started making music (and probably earlier). Whereas my last album, “The Long Goodbye”, went inward, minimal and sparse, “Glow” kicks up the tempo and travels through my musical DNA of influences in a way that feels both new, old and very much myself.

Over the past year and half, I took a little time off from spreading my own music in order to produce some other artists and find something new to say. I’m now excited to jump back into the flow, share what I’ve been making and reconnect with you. That’s what this pre-order campaign is for.

Here’s WHAT I want to do….

1. Use this album pre-order experience to check back in with you, catch up and feel your support;

2. Create a tour schedule that incorporates what I hope to be a whole lot of house concerts, based on your level of interest, that allow me to come into your living rooms and share the music face-to-face.

3. Combine our efforts in this creative exchange to give back something to a cause in need.

Here’s HOW I’m going to do it….

I’ll be giving you weekly updates where I’ll talk about the inspirations for the songs, give you little peeks into my life outside of music, and give you early access to hear the songs and watch any videos I’m making. I’ll also be offering up a whole host of items, available only here, that I hope you’ll find interesting and unique; Things such as signed cd’s, posters and handwritten lyric/tab sheets and t-shirts, opportunities for house concerts, online concerts, guitar and songwriting lessons and meeting up face-to-face to do stuff (like taking you on a hike).

My goal is to be able to give you something special for all the love and support you’ve given me over the years, while at the same time raising some funds to keep the wheels turning. In the process, we’ll be able to donate together to DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS an amount representing 30% of all funds raised in this pre-order campaign. I think it’s a win-win-win situation.

Can’t wait to get this rolling!

Always,

Chris

10% of funds
10% of all money raised will go to Doctors Without Borders.
